    The poignancy and attitude of this piece I find extremely touching. There is this adorable woman with a beautiful profile and yet on closer examination she seems to be tormented and bleeding… somehow resigned to live her life of sadness without complaint! A truly admirable piece Ronnie! I love it!

  2. thanks Jules appreciate the comment – there is a stillness (and solidity) about clay that I find it difficult to capture that kind of fleeting expression – so it is rewarding that you think she is about to speak – still a long way to go 🙂

  3. Her expressively long neck reminds me of Modigliani, Parmigianino, and the Queen Nefertiti in Berlin. The antique bodice reinforces the fragility of the clay. I hope your sirens are a success for you in your latest exhibition.

  4. Such august company – from the antiquities, through mannerism and into modernism – the more things change the more they stay the same! Thanks for your comment – cheers
